Germany is a large country, so the weather can vary greatly. The high altitude locations have a colder mountain climate that can drop into negative temperatures. The summers tend to be warm and predominantly moderate, with cool winters. Extreme temperatures are rare, though they have been known to occur.
Flying into Berlin is one of the easiest routes into the country, though it is located in the northeast. Munich is also home to a large international airport for southern adventures. Trains make access to slightly smaller destinations relatively easy, from Hamburg in the north to Stuttgart, Rosenheim, and Garmisch in the south. Roads are available for simple driving, even from cities in Austria like Salzburg and Innsbruck.
Germany is a year-round destination. If you are looking for winter activities, you will want to visit from December to April, and hikes can last from the spring all the way into late fall. Depending on the weather and precipitation, you can usually find what you’re looking for.
Germany is set in the north of central Europe, bordering Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, and Belgium in the north and France, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, and Czechia in the south. It has many different regional landscapes, each with particular features of intrigue. Its capital, Berlin, is a cultural hub with many museums and notably historical sites. Munich in the southern part of the country is home to Oktoberfest and serves as a gateway to the elevated terrain of Bavaria.
Unfortunately due to the weather condition we need to cancel. Rudi was very helpful and responsive.
Thanks.. will try again
I recently climbed the Zugspitze with you and I really enjoyed it. The guide was through Rudi who at the time could not climb but got me another guide, Toni from Garmisch. He was excellent and I really enjoyed the day. I would like to say a big thanks to Rudi and Toni and Lupe.
I loved my excursion! Rudi is a great guide who has been guiding for over a decade and has a lot of experience–yet was incredibly patient with me as more of a novice climber. For purposes of this tour, Rudi is also from the area and had a lot of local insights. Thanks for the great experience, Rudi and explore-share 🙂
Rudi is hands down the best!! Such an awesome trip to the top!
I don’t have much experience but I thought it was a great experience. The weather let us down a bit but everything else was first class in particular our guide. That, however, was Gudrun Schweikert not Rudi because he injured his knee. She was absolutely terrific. I can only highly recommend her. Kind regards; Uwe
Communication through emails was a bit bad, but the trip itself was tons of fun!
Guide was Reini.
He guided us at just the perfect speed to be back in 5 hours at the alpspitzbahn top station.
Great experience – first via ferrata!
A perfect day!
Was a great tour! We did Geierwand Klettersteig instead of Alpspitze due to snowy conditions, and guide was Moritz Filger.
Rudi was awesome!
Rudi is a fantastic guide. He speaks fluent English! He is interested in who you are, he motivates you in a relax way and gives you a helping hand. He was a great instructor for a group of women. Rudi thinks about safety as well. I will hire him the next time!
